Click here to access the CFSA Educational Neglect Reporting Form. (This reporting form works best using Google Chrome or an updated version of Internet Explorer)

Please note: Any form that does not document a school’s full contact efforts will be denied by CFSA and sent back to the reporting school

For any questions about CFSA's role in student contact during this time, and/or the school reporting form, please contact Joseph Osiecki at 202-497-3536 or [email protected]

***All suspicions of abuse or neglect, for children of all ages, must be reported through the CFSA Hotline at 202-671-SAFE (7233).*** 

During the distance learning period for schools in the District of Columbia, educators can reference the FAQ document for support in virtually assessing student safety and helping to determine when to place a call to the CFSA child abuse and neglect hotline. A webinar has also been developed to assist educators with their mandatory reporting duties and can be viewed via the following link: Assessing Child Safety in a Virtual Environment.
